Part of the maze of legal knowledge programmers are expected to understand and integrate into their work involves intellectual property and the rights surrounding the creation of code and processes.
A friend of mine who created Girl Gamer, Esq. is an attorney who specializes in intellectual property and a fellow chick nerd. Anne-Marie is going to be guest-posting http://onhealthy.net/product-category/mental-disorders/ here at The Cowgirl Coder to you coder types, and I’ll be pontificating vociferously over on her soapbox to her law geek friends. Our occasionally overlapping subjects of attention make us ideal for cross-posting, and you should see some great comment threads come out of this collaboration. Next post by Anne-Marie Marra, an honorary Cowgirl Coder!
